Tucked away in a cosy little sewing room, in a wee 1940's (almost) blue house, in New Zealand's deep south...

Hello, and thanks so much for stopping by. My name is Jen and I live in beautiful New Zealand with my husband, little baby boy and two cats - Mocha (aka Biddy Bee) and Monty (aka Momo) - who occasionally feature on the blog. Sometimes reluctantly.

I design fun, beautiful and functional sewing patterns with interesting details and unique construction techniques. With plenty of options perfect for beginners and advanced seamstresses alike, let's build a beautiful handmade wardrobe together.

We bought our first home, a 1940's doer-upper that came with three chickens and an over-abundant fruit and vege garden two years ago. It's still a work in progress, but, you can't rush these things right?

I firmly believe that sewing is a very personal thing and that there isn't one 'right' way to do it. I encourage you to try out your own ways of putting together a sewing pattern - if the way a technique is explained doesn't work for you, then do it your way.

This blog is mostly about my sewing projects with a little bit of baking and mischief thrown in too. So grab a seat, a cup of tea and make yourself at home.
